“Thrilled with the result,” Billy told the Observer after last Sunday’s demolition of Coolaney Mullinabreena in the AIB Connacht Club Intermediate Championship First Round clash, adding quite happily “We played as a team today, we played the whole game.”

“Some days we come out and play the first half and don’t play the second. Other days, we come out and play the second after not playing the first, but today we played the whole game and we played as a unit.

“They were told today that these boys are a young side, don’t give them any space or they’ll destroy you so they didn’t and you couldn’t knock them for anything they done.”
